ABOUT CEREBRAL VENOUS SINUS THROMBOSIS (CVST)

“A FATAL NEUROLOGICAL COMPLICATION IN ULCERATIVE COLITIS”

Cerebral venous sinus thrombosis is a rare complication of ulcerative colitis. Ulcerative colitis is a disease of gastro-intestinal tract. In this the internal lining of the entire colon is eroded and leads to ulceration, which occurs due to improper lifestyle and dietary habits. If the ulcerative colitis patients don’t get proper treatment and their condition continues to be worsen then they may end up with CVST as a complication. Ulcerative colitis also affects other systems of our body like the circulatory system, central nervous system, etc. Among neurological complications Cerebral vasculitis and CVST are more common. Cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVST) is a life threatening condition that arises due to the blood clot, present in the dural venous sinuses. Dural venous sinuses are channels present in between endosteal (the inner lining of skull bones) and dura matter (the outer meningeal layer that covers the brain and spinal cord). These venous sinuses collect blood from the brain, CSF (cerebrospinal fluid) from subarachnoid spaces and bring back the de-oxygenated blood to the heart via an internal jugular vein. This condition is very common in youngsters and in individuals who are suffering from ulcerative colitis. Symptoms include headache, blurred vision and person may end up with stroke hence difficult to diagnose in the initial stage.

CAUSES OF CEREBRAL VENOUS SINUS THROMBOSIS

  • Hypertension – High blood pressure is a reason of hemorrhage that leads to clot formation.
  • Thrombocytosis (elevated platelet level) – It is a condition that arises due to elevated platelet levels that may lead to blood coagulation.
  • Ulcerative colitis – In ulcerative colitis bleeding from ulcers is a common symptom, there will be clot formation in the colon region. Sometimes these clots detach from the endothelial lining and move around the body via blood vessels and may cross the blood- brain barrier and get localized in sinuses.
  • Internal hemorrhage – Hemorrhage leads to hematoma in the brain which cause thrombosis of veins.
  • Meningitis – Infection of the meningeal layers (Dura, arachnoid and pia matter) also leads to CVST.
  • Hormonal imbalance – Hormonal variation is also a cause of CVST.
  • Injury – Any injury to the head is also a cause of CVST.
  • Some disease complications likeBachet’s disease, inflammatory disorders are also one of the cause of CVST.
  • Dehydration in children
  • Alteration in the Virchow’s triad i.e. three factors that lead to thrombosis. It includes:-
    • Hypercoagulability
    • Hemodynamic changes
    • Injuries of the blood vessels

SYMPTOMS OF CEREBRAL VENOUS SINUS THROMBOSIS (CVST)

  • Headache – Due to increased intravenous pressure on the surrounding structures leads to headache.
  • Impaired vision – Due to increased pressure the IOP (intraocular pressure) may also get raised resulting in impairment of vision.
  • Impaired higher mental functions
  • Paralysis – The cause of paralysis is usually a thrombosis and embolism hence in CVST condition a person may end up with paralysis.
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Seizures
  • Delirium
  • Numbness and pains in the body
  • Coma in severe condition

DIAGNOSTIC CRITERIA

It is a rare disease that is difficult to diagnose clinically but can be detected by various diagnostic ways. They are:-

  • CBC
  • CT scan
  • MRI
